REIGNING NATIONAL CHAMPION DUKE BEATS DENVER IN NCAA LACROSSE SEMIFINALS

Junior Kyle Keenan scored a career-high four goals and classmate Kyle Turri recorded four saves in the final period to lead top-seeded Duke to a 15-12 win over fifth-seeded Denver in the NCAA Semifinals Saturday afternoon at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore, Md.

Duke (16-3) advances to Monday’s national championship game and will meet the Maryland-Notre Dame winner at 1 p.m.  Denver (15-3) had its 13-game winning streak snapped while two of the
Pioneers’ three losses on the season came at the hands of the Blue Devils.
 
Jordan Wolf added three goals and two assists for the Blue Devils, who will play for the national crown for the fifth time.  Duke fell in the title game in both 2005 and 2007 before winning championships in 2010 and 2013.
 
With Duke nursing a 12-11 lead midway through the fourth quarter, Keenan and Deemer Class scored goals just 15 seconds apart to push the lead to three at the 8:29 mark.  Just over a minute later, Wolf fed Chad Cohan for a marker that sent the margin to four at 15-11.  Denver scored with 6:29 left in the game to account for the final margin.
